Dave Novoselsky reviewed the GIRO II Deluxe mounts on Cloudy Nights. About the mount, Dave said "I am in love...Works great!"
This is the same mount as the one pictured on his "deluxe" review:grey color, anodized aluminum, except that Dave's had optional counterweight, and a second arm for a second telescope. I opted not to buy the counterweight or second arm and did not need a counterweight for my SV80 apo. If these extra's interest you, you can get them from APM or hands on optics.This is the Deluxe one arm version. It includes the counterweight bar it came with. I am including a FREE delrin adapter plate that Chris Garvey of Teleport scopes made for me. The adapter is a delrin donut that goes around the bottom raised center part of the base, effectively making the flat part of the base the full width of the mount, for even greater surface area contact with a tripod top. The center hole is 3/8".
New it sells for for 289. Mint condition, I've only had it out a couple of times, and it IS great! (Selling to raise fast cash)
210 + 10 ship/ins, firm, postal money order or bank checks only.
I will also include as part of the package a gm8 saddle plate, drilled to mate with the mount, and a losmandy dovetail for an addtl 95.
thanks for looking.
